This Rumor pits the party against undead trying to eat the villagers, represented by 7 tokens.

Characters may "take" a villager token and get bonus lore per token taken.
Foes may also "take" a villager token (and if possible also attack a character).

I guess "taking" a token means either saving or eating it (it's gone, Jim) for characters and foes, respectively.

If that is the case, then the success of the encounter with regard to saving villagers comes down to one roll: the First Strike roll. If the characters win, they can each save a villager. If the 6 monsters win, they each eat a villager, leaving just one for the characters to save.

Is this correctly understood?
Is this the intention with the Rumor?

We did this rumor last ween-end and we lost first strike roll... It was weird to have the whole thing being setup for only one roll.

We didn't like it.

We did this same rumor last weekend. For whatever reason we did not feel that a First Strike roll was necessary. I guess thematically because we were in the town already and "saw" the monsters coming.
We still were only able to save 4 of the 8 because we didn't want to divide our team. It was the first rumor we came across so our team was still new.
